RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
McClain is slated to start at inside linebacker for the third year in a row. He spends a lot of his time on the field occupying blockers and filling gaps so that Ray Lewis can get to the ball carrier. McClain is generally subbed out in favor Brendan Ayanbadejo on passing downs.
McClain won the battle at inside linebacker last season, and is expected to hang on to the starting spot this year. He recorded 71 tackles last season, and it should be a reasonable expectation that he match or exceed that total, especially if Ray Lewis looks slower.
McClain competed last season with Tavares Gooden for the starting inside linebacker spot next to Ray Lewis, and should see some playing time as a backup. He has little value as an IDP option, however.
Will Compete with Tavares Gooden for a starting spot at inside linebacker.
